Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM – Canon Super Telephoto Zoom Lens

Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM

There are quite a few super telephoto zoom lenses to choose from, but the Sigma 120-400mm has some characteristics that make it very attractive for Canon shooters.

What Makes The Sigma 120-400mm Lens Special

  • Telephoto length – 400mm on the long end gets you right in close to even the most skittish of subjects. Consider using the Sigma 120-400 on a Canon APS-C camera.. the equivalent focal length then becomes 192-640mm.
  • HSM – Hyper-sonic motor gives very fast focus. This is something you want when your subject does not tend to cooperate by staying in place for long periods of time.
  • OS – Optical Stabilization – This is the equivalent of Canon’s IS. It adds about 4 stops to your shutter speed, thus allowing hand-held shots in lower-light situations.
  • Price – There are very few lenses at this level of magnification and this aperture for less than $1000.. Great for budget conscious photographers.
